I've never had that problem with any of my eggs, but did notice a lot of the eggs at OKC Eggfest had that problem. They were falling off all over the place! Temp solution there was a little duct tape wrapped around the top under the daisywheel.
There is one just down the road from us in The Woodlands Mall (Houston area). I have spent more than I care to think about there. Everything in the store is available for tasting if you ask. Its all GOOD!
Here is the way I always do it. I've modified a Cooks Illustrated recipe a bit and get raves every time. The cooking time seems insane but it it really works (it took me several times to muster up the courage to cook it that long!).
When we cooked this at the Texas fest I had already done three cooks with wood chunks so I added a bit more coal and let the egg burn off for about an hour before baking the cake.
Colleen said to pass on a big thank you for all nice comments.
I always put on a little sausage right at the start to "season the egg" a little. I just love this Conecuh sausage out of Evergreen, Alabama. Here is a link and my son says to call them and they will get you a better shipping rate than on the web si…
What a blas! It sure was an honor to meet the person behind so many creative and tempting cooks. I can never pass up opening your posts to see what some'en youve cooked up. Hope to see you at some future fests.
Tweety, this is the one I served in OKC
I take some to every eggfest and it is always a hit.
If you order it, it is best to call they can give you a better shipping rate the site.
